Marshall Crenshaw
SOLO SHOW
Marshall Crenshaw is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known for his song "Someday, Someway", a Top 40 hit in 1982. His music has roots in classic soul music, British Invasion songcraft, Burt Bacharach and Buddy Holly.

Over the course of a career that’s spanned three decades, 13 albums and hundreds of songs, Marshall Crenshaw’s musical output has maintained a consistent fidelity to the qualities of melody, craftsmanship and passion, and his efforts have been rewarded with the devotion of a broad and remarkably loyal fan base. After an early break playing John Lennon in a touring company of the Broadway musical "Beatlemania," his growing fame in his adopted hometown of New York City helped to win Crenshaw a deal with Warner Brothers Records, which released his self-titled debut album. With such classics as “Someday, Someway” and “Cynical Girl,” that LP established Crenshaw as one of his era’s preeminent tunesmiths.

Along the way, Crenshaw’s compositions have been successfully covered by a broad array of performers, including Bette Midler, Kelly Willis, Robert Gordon, Ronnie Spector, Marti Jones and the Gin Blossoms, with whom Crenshaw co-wrote the Top 10 single “Til I Hear It From You.” He’s also provided music for several film soundtracks, appeared in the films La Bamba (as Buddy Holly) and Peggy Sue Got Married, and was nominated for a Grammy and a Golden Globe award for penning the title track for the film comedy "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story."

Marshall's solo shows are filled with great songs, impassioned singing and his sly, dry wit that puts everyone at ease and is always entertaining.
